Geography

 

Geography at Great Moor is led by Mrs Bland.

Children learn to use geographical skills to find out about different places, physical and human features in the environment, changing environments and the ways people and the environment affect each other.  They do this through their study of places and themes including the following:

  • The local area of Great Moor and its environment.
  • Rivers and Mountains
  • Weather and the Water Cycle
  • A region in Europe, the Norht West of England and North and  South America
  • The village of Flash in North Staffordshire.

Children use maps, atlases and plans to study places at different scales – local, regional and national.  They learn where important places and environments are in the world (for example cities, rivers, and mountain ranges in the UK and Europe), looking at some of these places in detail.  Pupils carry out fieldwork investigations such as a survey of a small stream, the different types of buildings in the local area and how Flash, a village in the Peak District, is affected by tourism.
